Samsung Electronics has announced plans to introduce a real-time call translation service using AI technology in its upcoming Galaxy flagship model, set to launch early next year.
The company claims this feature will make conversing across languages as effortless as “turning on closed captions.”
The technology, integrated into the new Galaxy model, will facilitate seamless translation in both audio and text formats while callers are engaged in a conversation.
Samsung’s real-time translation service will not be limited to its own devices, as the technology will function even if the call partner uses a non-Samsung smartphone.
The on-device AI technology is poised to make language barriers a thing of the past, potentially supporting numerous languages.
While the promise of real-time voice call translation is hailed as a significant achievement, analysts raise questions about the practicality and execution of the process.
The company is also concurrently developing Samsung Gauss, a generative AI model, to be integrated across its product range for various applications, including language, code, and image processing.
Samsung’s GalaxyAI, powered by generative AI, is anticipated to revolutionise how users interact with their devices. From language assistance to image editing, the embedded AI is poised to bring about substantial changes.
Amid growing concerns about data privacy in the AI landscape, Samsung emphasises that GalaxyAI will operate on its devices, ensuring that private conversations remain securely stored on the user’s phone. This commitment aligns with ongoing discussions about the responsible use of AI technology.
